Increased sensitivity through use of overlapping 180° orbits in clinical myocardial perfusion imaging

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

A cardiac/chest phantom is used to compare several triple-detector orbits, with assessment on sensitivity and resolution. A 180° rotation with reconstruction of two or three heads has been evaluated, resulting in overlapping 180° orbits; moreover, use of a starting angle of 165° for the first head placed the overlapping portion of the orbits over the LAO myocardial region. Where camera-cardiac distance is most favorable.
